"Try to Understand" as written by and Allison Weiss....
Well I'm sitting here in silence
And I'm feeling so discouraged
'Cause I only want to call you
But I just don't have the courage

And it seems like only yesterday
things were going fine
It's funny how our lives can change
In only seconds' time

And I know I'll miss the bad jokes and the way you never called
I know I'll miss the way your TV glowed blue on the wall
As we lay there in the darkness
Try to understand it all

Understand it all
Couldn't understand at all

I'm sorry that I never could
Quite say this to your face
Always hiding behind melody lines
Hooks that keep me safe

And I know this may be catchy
But I know you can't relate
So what's possible's impossible
And that I won't debate

But I know I'll miss the bad jokes and the way you never called
I know I'll miss the way your TV glowed blue on the wall
as we lay there in the darkness
Try to understand it all

Understand it all
Couldn't understand at all

So don't take this the wrong way
This is nothing like the past
I'm fine and I am okay
With the fact that this won't last

And I'll try to fix my problem
Sorry I was so afraid
Of what could've been
What should've been

Oh, what a mess I've made

'Cause I know I'll miss the bad jokes and the way you never called
I know I'll miss the way your TV glowed blue on the wall
As we lay there in the darkness
Try to understand it all

Understand it all
Couldn't understand at all...

    General CommentA song about a break up where you dont wnat it to end but it does and it is more because of personal problems and so you'll try to fix your problems but still will miss that person..
